Rhode Island Releases Write-ins for President from November 2016 Election

On January 17, the Rhode Island State Board of Elections released the presidential write-ins from November 2016. Rhode Island has no write-in filing procedure for president, and tallies anyone who got at least 5 write-ins. Evan McMullin received 732 write-ins, and Darrell Castle received 47. Therefore, their national totals are: McMullin 732,001; Castle 203,024.

Also, Michael Maturen received 33 write-ins in Rhode Island. No one else who was actually running, and who was not on the ballot in Rhode Island, received any.

Among non-candidates, Bernie Sanders easily got the most write-ins: 3,074. To see the entire list, e-mail me at richardwinger@yahoo.com.

  1. “Evan McMullin received 732 write-ins, and Darrell Castle received 47. Therefore, their national totals are: McMullin 732,001; Castle 203,024.”

    Are these final vote totals for Evan McMullin and Darrell Castle? If so, is there some place that has a list of final vote totals for all of the candidates?

  2. The final presidential vote totals by state (for the 8 leading candidates) are in the Jan. 1 2017 print issue of Ballot Access News.

  3. I assume that this did not include the write in votes from Rhode Island, which were apparently released on January 17th.

  4. Castle thus becomes the highest vote getter ever, for President, for the Constitution Party, surpassing Chuck Baldwin .

  5. I just now (2017-03-20 9am) received the write-in results from Mr. Manny Ramirez at the Rhode Island Board of Elections. The totals that I have are different than the ones that you posted. Could it be that they were updated?

    Bernie Sanders: 3497
    Evan McMullin: 773
    Darrell Castle: 52
    Michael Maturen: 34
    Gloria La Riva: 8
    Tom Hoefling: 7
    Chris Keniston: 6
